mornings to talk about the wind energy industry and the importance of the trucks tax credit. but before -- and the importance of the production tax credit. before i begin i'd like to associate myself with the majority leader's remarks. we do need to extend the tax cuts for the middle class as soon as possible. that's clearly the message the american people sent on november 6 in the nationwide election that we had. i also want to respond to the comments and the conversation between the two leaders over the debt ceiling limit. it's important to recognize that when we raise the debt ceiling all we are doing is keeping faith with what congress has already appropriated, what congress has already made clear we will spend on behalf of our country and all the various ways that the federal government operates. we cannot afford to have a situation like we had august before last where we dallied and we literally shot our economy and ourselves in the foot by not extending the debt ceiling. we saw one of the rating agencies lower our national rating; first time in history. there is a way to do this
the most independent sovereign ty is the most important point. peaceful use of the nuclear energy and the other is the peaceful use for outer space. actually using outer space with the launch and show you the time of december. a little bit before december, south korea had time launch their own satellite. they delayed the launch and during the preparation, no one complained. no one criticized. whenever north korea did something with the missile launch, anyone in the international community cannot accept it. therefore some of them admit that north korea has a right to launch missiles into outer space. >> we are talking about two missiles. plus it's december, not the best of months. >> that's right. yeah. it's a quite unusual one. they strongly indicated that the 100 day hold to succeed, but they understand about the product because in the winter time and using the fuel is quite unstable and weather conditions are not so good. >> despite that they are willing to take the risk. >> that's right. yes because again -- the independent sovereignty are quite important. they are much more pr

in the atmosphere and all those people now guzzling up power and energy and emitting gases that weren't there before. surely that is evidence, isn't it? >> no. you go to the peer reviewed literature. are you looking at anecdotal evidence. basically global warmists like bill nye say global warming will cause many bad weather events and guess what? bad weather events happen all the time so people look and say look, there's more proof, there's a bad weather event. bottom line, big tornadoes, f-3 and larger since 1950s have dropped dramatically. bottom line, we've gone the longest period without a major u.s. category 3 or larger hurricane hitting the u.s. since 1900, maybe the civil war. bottom line, new study in the journal nature, peer reviewed, no change in u.s. drought in the last 60 years. bottom line, a new study out shows that drought has not changed in 85 to -- >> let me -- wait a minute. wait a minute. let me add one more bottom line before i defer to bill nye. he knows more about this than i do. another bottom line, the world is indisputably getting warmer. the u.n. weather agency said last we
the commodity. the u.s. energy department released the report on wednesday. it says the export of shale gas and other natural gas products would raise energy prices, but it would help the economy overall. the government is now ready to examine whether to give the go-ahead to export projects. a number of energy firms hope to export natural gas as the surge in shale gas output pushes domestic gas prices sharply lower. now, the export plans include business with japan's electric and gas utilities, japanese energy firms have had to increase their use of thermal power plants since the nuclear accident, and they are pretty keen now to buy cheaper u.s. gas. >>> let's get a check of the markets now, starting in europe, where stocks are trading higher. this is on fresh hopes that u.s. politicians will be able to clinch a deal to avoid that fiscal cliff. london's ftse 100 is up right now by 0.2%. we see the frankfurt market moving ahead, up about a percent. paris's cac 40 seeing gains of 0.3%. earlier in asian trading, share prices were largely mixed. there was some profit-taking from yesterday's gai

. let's face it the g.o.p. needs new energy. it needs branding help. heck, we have a lot of issues resolve amongst ourselves before we even from a hope of rebuilding the movement to appeal to new generations of voters. of course, libertarians and social conservatives are probably never going abortion and gay marriage. they must find a way to agree on other critical issues. republican con sis tans on globalization, immigration reform, the china threat or middle east policy. conservatives couldn't even agree on sensible steps on healthcare reform other than to repeal obama care. the republican party will continue to be adrift unless conservatives, still the most influential group within the party have a clear sense of what they stand for and what policies will best serve their cause and the nation's. so beyond the fiscal cliff resolution, we need to find better messengers, better candidates who are also media and tech savvy. whatever our differences, we can all agree as conservatives on a philosophy grounded in limited government, the free market and the judeo-christian tradition and

. i look at my own state of north dakota. we're doing amazing things with energy. as a matter of fact, we're hot on the trail of the state of texas when it comes to oil development. we're after you. i'm telling you. but do you know what it's going to take? it's going to take continued development of the technologies that not only help us produce more energy but help us do it with good environmental stewardship. and what we are talking about is making sure that when we have the engineers and the scientists and the technicians and the mathematicians that graduate from our great universities with doctorate and master's degrees, they can stay here and help us do it here rather than have it done somewhere else in some other country that then gets ahead of the united states. and i still go back to this will help us solve the fundamental challenges we face today, which is getting this economy growing so we get people back to work and creating the reason to help us with our deficit and our debt. with that, i yield back to the esteemed senator from texas. mr. cornyn: could i ask how much time

getting started. lots going on. a new green energy project funded by you the taxpayer. did you know you are one of the prime investors in a new electric car battery? bill: there are new concerns about a north korean rocket launch any day. a top u.s. commander labeling it very dangerous. what is the u.s. doing in response? martha: back at home lawmakers get a look at this video now from the deadly libya terror attack scene. why one congressman said before this happened it looked like people were milling around like a miami street party, then what happened. >> this is supposed to be sovereign u.s. territory, and if people can just come and walk in on us like that without any kind of resistance, really makes your blood boil because you are thinking to yourself. where is the security? progresso this reduced sodium soup says it mahelp lower cholesterol, how does it work? you just he to eat it as part of your heart healthy diet. step 1. eat the soup. all those veggies and beans, that's what may help lower your cholesterol and -- well that's easy [ male announcer ] progresso. you gotta taste t
and vietnam had a new dispute over the energy exploration. and vietnam accused a chinese fishing boat of cutting off the cable of the vietnamese vessel. mr. secretary, how would you respond to this new development? and also, why are many people accused of -- accuse chinese reaction of more assertive? do you think exploring in a dispute order -- the energy in a dispute order is a good behavior to calm down a situation over there? thank you. >> let me say, and this relates to the earlier question, obviously we have seen these new regulations having been issued in hainan. they do raise some concerns not just in the united states but regionally. we have gone in at high levels and asked for clarification and underscored our overall policy of seeking to avoid provocations and to maintain peace and stability more generally. one of the challenges that we face, and richard alluded to it, is that many people believe that some of these areas involve very potentially rich resources and reserves of natural gas and petroleum. i think, in certain circumstances in the south china sea and elsewhere, w
if it wanted to. it supplies 90% of the north korea's energy and substantial amounts of food to keep the north korean population there instead in china. but china has not been willing to do that because it fears that the regime would collapse and the peninsula would reunify. that's what we need to convince china long term it is in their interests. if north korea's nuclear weapons program goes on other countries in the region, japan, south korea, taiwan and others are themselves going to look whether they want nuclear weapons which would obviously make the entire region much more unstable. jon: and for those who wondered whether kim jong-un had staying power as leader of north korea, he just bought himself a whole lot of time in that job, didn't he? >> well i think he showed that the capability of the north koreans has been underestimated and i think you're right. this will be a political boost for him but let's be clear. this rocket-testing program and the work with iran have been going on for decades and they have had some notable failures but each failure tells them something and each succes
